Opening Day!...

Tomorrow will be my first day of skiing for the season. Right now it's looking like we'll have a great start. We already have a fucking ton of snow and we're supposed to get more tonight - they're saying another 6-10 inches. The forecast is for 27 degrees, which is about perfect. I probably won't even wear a hat with temps that high. It's nice because usually conditions on the first day aren't very good. Some of my newer readers may not know that I'm a member of the ski patrol. I know. Scary to think that the skiing public is depending on me to keep them safe. Here's hoping the powder is deep and the broken bones are minimal. I'll provide a full report tomorrow.

To bad your real name wasn't Sven. You LOOK like a Sven.

I used to love skiing. Unfortunately, I've been priced out of the sport. Have a safe year.

the ski patrol? ...Awesome?... Sorry, I find it hard to believe 27 degrees as warm. Maybe in Celsius?

Cora said...

Poo is right, you DO look like a Sven in that picture! :-)

Have fun!

Great minds think alike! I swear when I saw that pic, before I even read Poo's comment, I was gonna say:

"It is I, Sven...the ski instructor...You like? I like!"

But having him steal my name for you kinda cheapens it a little.

Shouldn't you have one of those mini kegs under your neck?

Sven, I hope you and your Saint Bernard save everyone and party with that alcohol in the Saint Bernard's collar aftward in safety. Sorry, can't remember what that alcohol is right now, may have drank some...
